BIDS A BITTERSWEET FAREWELL TO
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
EVONNE GALLARDO


Interim Director Appointed as Organization Launches Search for a New Executive Director

After nearly nine years of service to Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) and five years as executive director, Evonne Gallardo is leaving her post to to dedicate more time in assisting family during a period of medical need. The board of directors is grateful to Gallardo for her leadership and passion for nurturing the work of Latino artists. The board is especially appreciative to Gallardo for spearheading the organization's move to its new home in Boyle Heights. The board wishes Gallardo and her family strength and wellness.

During this time of transition, the SHG board has selected Rudy Espinoza, to serve as interim executive director of Self Help Graphics. Beginning July 1, 2014, Espinoza will manage day-to-day operations of the organization including its transformative art programming and support in the search for a permanent executive director. During this transition period, Espinoza will be the organization's point of contact with artists, community partners, and donors. He will also focus on ensuring that Self Help Graphics continues to maintain its presence in the community while forging new connections that can support Self Help's future executive director.

Espinoza is the executive director for Leadership for Urban Renewal Network (LURN, Inc.) A long-time Self Help partner, LURN is a nonprofit, community development organization that is committed to designing ways to responsibly revitalize low-income neighborhoods through smart urban policy and innovative economic development projects. LURN also supports community-based organizations through advisory services to maximize the impact they make in low-income, urban neighborhoods. For the last few months, LURN has been working with SHG on a community-wide initiative to explore how the arts can support community development efforts and prevent gentrification. Assisting with SHG's leadership transition will build on this work.

"Evonne's contributions to Self Help have been crucial in advancing the organization into its 40th anniversary of service," said Raquel Dominguez, chair of SHG's board of directors. "Her leadership came at a pivotal time in the organization's history and helped position us for the next 40 years."

The Board of Directors at Self Help Graphics & Art has begun the process of identifying a new executive director and is committed to making sure its partners are involved in the process and made aware of new developments in Self Help Graphics' growth.
